DE­FENDER TDI

200TDI/300TDI – 1990 TO 1998

Land Rover Monthly - - Price Check -

LAND ROVER work­horses were trans­formed by the Tdi diesels. The 200Tdi was fit­ted from 1990 to 1994 and was su­perceded by the 300Tdi, which sharedteh same power and torque fig­ures but was slightly more re­fined. This was the be­gin­ning of the golden era of De­fend­ers and many would ar­gue the great­est ve­hi­cles ever built. There is a steady sup­ply of ser­vice­able en­gines and gear­boxes from scrapped Dis­cov­erys of the same era. BUYER’S TIP: As pop­u­lar as ever – and ris­ing in value. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS 2.5-litre turbo-charged, di­rect­in­jec­tion diesel. 107 bhp, 195 lb-ft torque. LT77S (200Tdi) or R380 (300Tdi) five-speed trans­mis­sion.

PRICE GUIDE Poor: £2700 – £3800 Av­er­age: £3800 – £6400 Good: £6400 – £11,900 Ex­cel­lent: £11,900 – £40,000
